The DG-1000 is the latest release at Dirks-Glaser. It
declines in two spans, 18 m which is fully aerobatic and the 20 m high performance version.
The design target was to put together all advantages of three current designs on the
market the ASK-21, the Duo Discus and the DG-505. The wingplanform may remember the Duo
Discus and has a quad taper, which improves the low speed handling. The seats have been
rearranged so the rear seat is higher to improve visibility. The main wheel has been moved
forward so that the front wheel could be removed to reduce it's induced drag. We at ICARE
are very proud to offer here a (~1:5) exclusive super-scaleTM reproduction of a very high performance
The size of this glider makes it a good candidate to get
into scale soaring. This is a fully molded model. The kit comes with short and long wing
tip extension. The short wing is a blast and fully aerobatic glider. The long wing will
give you a smooth handling, a great LD and exceptional thermability. The HQ airfoil has
very smooth and forgiving flying characteristics. It is easy to do tight circles without
tip stalling out. Also easy to winch, it likes it behind a tow plane for thermal duration
flying or aerobatic program.
Super scale kit features:
Fully hollow molded plane, very strong and durable wings.
True full carbon I-beam spar construction.
Carbon reinforced wing skin at root.
Full carbon root rib and tip ribs.

A small package hardware and a short building instruction are completing the kit.

two for the airbrakes, one micro for the elevator, three regular servos for the elevator,
